Artist's Bio:
Born in India, at a young age Java earned several accolades in addition to earning Masters in Fine Arts and Ph.D. in Drawing & Painting from India. Java also graduated in Multimedia and Web Design, AIA Atlanta.

I discovered my passion for painting at an early age of 13 and have been painting since then. At an early age, I was influenced by abstract impressionism and style of great artists like Van Gogh. One of my collection is based on famous international plays such as “Three Sisters” - Russian play by Anton Checkov, “Waiting for Godot” – play by Samuel Beckett, “The Caucasian Chalk Circle - a play by Bertolt Brecht etc. My recent collection focuses on paintings based on Indian folk dances” and “Indian villages”. I came to US to pursue Masters in Multimedia and Web Design from Art Institute of Atlanta. I am part of the planning committee for Lexington Open Studios where many local artists showcase their work. I have also participated multiple En Plaine Aire live painting events such as Revolutionary Revelry, Lexington’s 300th anniversary etc. I was also nominated and honored by India New England during Women of the Year 2013 for my contributions and promotion of art.
